Sacred Egyptian Animals : Documentary on the Important Creatures of Ancient Egypt



  1. Wow, I used to think of Egypt as a mystical and mysterious place, but after watching this I realise now they were just primitives who made up stories about animals having power to protect humans. I and my partner laughed at almost everything said in this doco. The hippo being deemed "a protector" because their fat stomachs look like a pregnant womans bulge was my favourite part – laughable! This doco really opened my eyes – they were the same as any other people employing narratives based in superstition for power and self-protection. Really primitive tribal stuff. I feel sorry for all the animals they subjected to their bizarrely ridiculous delusions. I guess if Egyptians of that era were largely African tribesmen then the primitve superstition due to a total void of science makes sense. Wow.
